think we're building society responsibly the bottom line is with lives and our planet on the line we can always strive to do better than. we see i see glaciers of our planet's cold wisconsin and turn into green valleys and other burning issues currently being tackled by antarctic scientists as artie's schon thomas reports. each week pull up movement of hikes to the billings homes and glacier on kings georgia islands to measure twenty nine different markers. by doing so he can record exactly how the glacier changes each year and it seems that glaciers in antarctica are getting smaller yet. if i put our glaciers are changing in size point search engine climates right now we know that since the middle or the end of the nineteenth century the majority of glass years are receding it means there is a general warming over climate antarctica provides
11:25 pm
a unique opportunity where scientists can get a firsthand look at how this warming trend affects the local ecosystem some greater amount of fresh water is coming from the sea which forms a freshwater layer. the surface of the sea water fresh water is lighter so there is some problem with those mixing of the water coral which could possibly influence the structure of. plankton zooplankton and krill are the main source of food for the majority of life in antarctica clearly over the last thirty years in this region the amount of ice which is critical for coral survival in the wintertime has declined that means that the area may not support the amount of cruel in the future that it has supported in the past penguin species delhi penguins and chinstrap penguins are declining in this region principly due to that
11:26 pm
decline in crude even though the overall global trend is pointing to what is in fact global warning some scientists are saying that we're living between ice ages and this is all part of a natural cycle in fact there is some evidence to suggest that we're at the beginning of the next cooling trend. on the back of the mean indicator on the glass here is the equilibrium lie in altitudes it's the altitude where the accumulates the minds of snow equals the males of their minds if they sow to chew to get tired it means that the climate is getting warmer and if the altitude gets lor it means that the climate is getting colder since two thousand and six this altitude keeps getting lower. and while scientists have been keeping track of how the glaciers have been reacting to changes in the environment they say it is just one part of a much larger system that we have to keep in mind we don't have a situation where climate changes in the same way all over the planet somewhere is getting warmer summer is getting colder and somewhere there are new changes atoll
11:27 pm
had the same time which tendency occurs in which area is also changing so if the climate here and right now is constant in the future this can also change although not all scientists agree on the levels of climate change most believe that it is becoming increasingly more important to monitor what is happening on our southern most continent antarctica is a truly spectacular place it is changing rapidly and more knowledge about what is changing and why can only help all of us understand all the areas of the planet that are going to change in the future so we might have a chance of being prepared for whatever comes down the line in antarctica sean thomas our team. back with a recap of our top stories in a few minutes stay with us.
